Slag Queens - Flowers

Slag Queens - Flowers
Ten songs about life in Tasmania, conflict and survival under late capitalism, and slagging off your boyfriends, girlfriends and queer pals. It’s a document of the band’s unique and considerably diverse sound as it’s developed over the last two years; from punchy dark postpunk tracks like ‘Waterfall’ and ‘Flowers’, to sincere power ballad ‘Wear This 4 U’, and catchy dance jam of ‘Real 1’.

But it hasn’t been an easy journey for the band to reach this point. Despite strapping some hard earned wins under their belts in 2018 with two well-received singles, ‘Lena’ and ‘Waterfall’, and securing a highly-competitive Australian Council of the Arts grant, Slag Queens have hobbled into 2019 bearing the scars of significant conflict within the band and Tasmania’s tight-knit music community. The experience of making this record has called into question the band’s ethics; asking what it means to hold strong feminist and anti-racist values in a small community within the context of #metoo and online call out culture.

‘You Can’t Go Out Like That’ was recorded by Jordan Marson (Naked, Oceans, Peak Body) in the living rooms of cottages in the Launceston suburb of Invermay and in West Hobart, and mastered by Mikey Young.
